The Alexander Technique Story.

In the process of trying to understand the causes, and develop a treatment for his own vocal problems, Alexander came to an extremely clear understanding of the unconscious habitual patterns that make up almost all of how we react to the stimuli of life.

He discovered that many of these habitual patterns are undesirable, as they interfere with functioning and health. As he persevered in trying to remove these patterns, he came to realize how they needed to be prevented through a process he called inhibition, and be replaced through a process he called direction. Both of these are conscious, thinking activities.
